Important California legislation: Fitted or flat sheets at hotels

You can not make this stuff up. You would think the California legislature would have something better to do other than implementing a hotel mandate requiring fitted sheets instead of flat sheets because the fitted sheets are easier for the hotel staff to swap out.

Fitted or flat?

That’s the weighty question facing the California Legislature, which is considering a bill that would regulate what type of sheets can be used on hotel bed mattresses across the state.

Supporters of the bill argue it will reduce worker injuries by eliminating the need for workers to repetitively lift extremely heavy mattresses when making beds. They contend that flat sheets cause workers to strain their backs, shoulders and wrists, and are often responsible for repetitive motion injuries.

Why not just pass legislation that requires hotel guests to make their own beds? Maybe pass a law that only allows hotel staff to change the sheets when a new guest arrives in the room?

    Is there something in coastal waters that makes leftist legislatures ignore staggering debt and business atrophy while pursuing idiotic regulatory solutions to problems that do not exist?? Maybe they don’t have state supplied laptop computers on which to play solitaire like Corrupticut’s legiscritters.? They could argue really important issues if they had 17th century witch trial convictions to overturn,? just as our proud representatives debated here.
